Tensioning Tool with Auto Cut Off

The TY6 Tensioning Tool is designed for heavy users of nylon ties. An adjustment knob allows an installer to set a desired tension for securing flex duct to a take-off collar. When the tie is tight, a breakaway spring mechanism releases the tool’s lower handle, which causes a blade to engage and automatically cut off the excess tail of the nylon tie. No extra operation for manual trimming is required. Nylon tie installation is fast and easy with the TY6. Malco’s auto cut off tensioning tool works on all ties including thin designs.

Operating the TY6 tensioning tool is easy on the installer too! Contoured handles, with stops, are easier to grasp. Also, the smooth lever action and vinyl cushion grips minimize hand and arm fatigue on big jobs.

The TY6 features a hardened steel body, long wearing parts, and a weather resistant nickel chrome finish to assure many years of dependable service.

All Malco Tie Tools are designed to work on standard 175 lb. ties, as well as thinner lb. ties.

Attention: Do not over-tighten. Adjust knob only with fingers.
